WARNING Editing it....! -------------- This is an inofficial fork for a student project. What is Tripal? -------------- Tripal is a collection of open-source freely available Drupal modules and is a member of the GMOD family of tools. Tripal serves as a web interface for the GMOD Chado database and is designed to allow anyone with genomic data to quickly create an online genomic database using community supported tools. Features -------------- - a Chado installer - Data loaders for ontologies (controlled vocabularies), GFF files, and FASTA files - Generic Data Loader Modules allows for creation of custom loading templates - Drupal nodes (web pages) are automatically generated for organisms, genomic features, biological libraries, and stocks - Web pages can be enriched with analysis results from BLAST, KAAS/KEGG, InterProScan, and Gene Ontology (GO) - Views Integration allows for custom listings of data - Content pieces exposed as blocks allowing the use of Panels for custom layouts of Tripal Nodes Required Modules -------------- - Drupal 6.x (work is currently underway for a 7.x compatible version) - Drupal Core Modules: Search and Path - Database containing GMOD Chado Schema (can be installed by the Tripal Core module) NOTE: A PostgreSQL database is required for installation of the Chado Schema Highly Recommended Modules - Views 2.x (Views 3.x compatible version already exists in 6.x-0.4-dev) - Views Data Export Installation -------------- Please follow the online tutorial for installation instructions: http://www.gmod.org/wiki/Tripal_Tutorial_v1.1 Customization -------------- Tripal can be used “as is” but also allows for complete customization. PHP-based template files are provided for all data types to allow for precise customizations as required by the community. A well-developed Tripal API provides a uniform set of variables and functions for accessing any and all data within the Chado database. Future Work -------------- Currently, Tripal only supports a large subset of the current Chado schema, but further development is underway. Meanwhile, others can use the Tripal API to develop their own extensions. Those extensions can in turn be made available for anyone to use. These custom extensions, the Tripal package, and access to support resource such as an active mailing list can be found on the Tripal website (http://tripal.sourceforge.net).
